Controversial Nigerian politician, Dino Melaye has advised Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi to drop out of the presidential race.
According to the former Lawmaker, it’s not his time to rule Nigeria. In a video he posted online, Dino Melaye said that the chances of the former Anambra state governor of becoming Nigeria’s next president might be cut short as he may not be trusted or accepted by people from different regions.
“I celebrate you Peter Obi and your movement for a new Nigeria. I celebrate the conscientization of the Nigerian youths and the public, but I want to advise that your time is not now. You are a great Nigerian. I salute your political and intellectual sagacity. You are one Nigerian. I know tomorrow there’s a space for you, but for today, let us forget the social media drama. Let us forget the diaspora euphoria.
“The answer in every sincerity of purpose and act of commitment is no, so we need one Nigeria who is going to be trusted by every part of Nigeria, who the South and North will believe in, and that person without blinking my eyes is Atiku Abubakar.
“I have listened to your postulations, I have listened to your arguments, I have listened to your deliveries, I have listened to your campaigns and I can say that 90 percent of your campaigns are dwelling on reducing the cost of governance.
“Most of your campaigns are around cutting the cost of governance and I want to tell you that the problem of Nigeria is beyond just cutting the cost of governance. I’m not saying it’s deceptive or pretentious, but it’s less than 1 percent of our national problems.
“We need a Nigerian who can solve the problem of Boko Haram, banditry and kidnapping in Nigeria and Sub Saharan Africa – Benin, Chad, Mali, and Cameroun”
